The 9th annual Colorado Gives Day is underway! This 24 hour giving event — one of the largest and longest running in the country — encourages unprecedented regional giving across Colorado every year. Learn more about the innovation behind this groundbreaking event by watching the video below!
CiviCore is proud to be Community First Foundation’s technology partner for Colorado Gives Day. Community First Foundation has employed the CiviCore Giving Platform for more than 10 years, and in that time has raised over $250 million overall for Colorado nonprofits since 2007.
Dana Rinderknecht, Director of Online Giving at the Community First Foundation — highlighted in the video above — has been a driving force behind that success, participating in Colorado Gives Day since its inception. She attributes the success of Colorado Gives Day to constant innovation and new ideas, a great community partner in FirstBank, an engaged Colorado community, and a strong network of regional nonprofits.
Community First Foundation, the sponsor of the giving event, and FirstBank, Community First Foundation’s long-standing corporate partner for Colorado Gives Day, have offered amazing incentives in past years, and 2018 is no exception.

Colorado’s engaged community is represented not only by great corporate partners, but by a generous donor base. Donors love Colorado Gives Day because it provides a place to research their favorite causes and find verified nonprofit organizations to which they can give. In addition, donors can plan and manage giving via their own personalized giving account where they can store their profile and payment information, as well as the organizations they wish to support. Add to that the fact that all contributions can be amplified through the $1 million dollar incentive fund in 2018, and donors can encourage charitable habits in children through the Kids for Colorado Gives site, and the draw to Colorado Gives Day is apparent.
